The Devilin Fey by Jess C Scott

The Devilin Fey by Jess C Scott
* I received this ARC free from the author in exchange for an honest review*

 A paranormal romance novella of two stories, featuring an incubus and succubus.

Story #1 features a demure young woman unleashing the “devil in” her, through the intimacy with an incubus.

Story #2 features a voyeuristic succubus driven by jealousy and a dangerous fixation.

Story 1, The Devlin Fey centers around a female college student Caitlin who has been having dreams of a strange man coming to her at night.  Through her relationship with him, she takes on succubus qualities at night, while remaining human. 

The incubus, Lucius is tired of a life of meaningless fornication and is looking for someone to share his world with him.  He hand picks Caitlin because he sees her devilish side inside and thinks she will be a good companion.  What he didn’t expect was for her to object to being forced into his world.

The story is about discovering oneself and finding out what your truest wants and desires are.   After a night about town as a succubus, her encounters lead her to believe that she can be both, human during the day and a succubus by night.

At times the story was hard to follow for me but the further I got into the story the better it got.  At one point I almost put the book down when it looked like Lucius was going to become violent with her because she was turning him down.  I am glad that I kept reading because that was not the case, and she handled the situation well.  I like Caitlin’s character, she has been this pure soul for so long but the devil has been hiding inside waiting to come out.

The second story, Tongue-Tied is about a succubus that comes across a female that she becomes obsessed with.   As she watches Adriana she is drawn to her.  They have an encounter at Adriana’s apartment that leaves the succubus shaken.  She ends up following her around the next day to determine the things that will turn her on.  She wants to learn everything about her.  Throughout the day Adrianna has meetings with an internet friend, a counselor, and dinner with another friend, asking each one what is love and trying to figure out her own sexuality.

In the end the succubus goes to her and it is sweet and touching.  Adrianna shares her notebook of private thoughts with her and both start to wonder if they can find love and companionship with each other.

I liked reading the notes in the journal, they are private thoughts but they speak of the emotional turmoil that Adrianna has been going through all  these years.  I liked the second story better than the first.  To me, it flowed a little better.

Overall they are both good short stories with a different take on paranormal with some erotic elements thrown in.  I give The Devlin Fey 3 flaming hearts.
